Meghan Markle effect: Fans gush over ‘see-through’ ballgown in official engagement photos

KENSINGTON PALACE/GETTY ROYAL SEAL OF APPROVAL: Everyone's loving Meghan's latest get-upMeghan Markle has raised the style stakes again with her sophisticated engagement photos. In the Royal snaps, she opted for a striking mesh ballgown by British designers Ralph & Russo – and everyone is loving it. The 36-year-old has a habit of making clothes fly off the shelves and we’re sure that this will be no exception. The stunning dress – which is part of designer’s 2016/2017 Autumn/ Winter collection – features a sheer top adorned with a delicate gold corn strand motif and ruffled floor-length skirt. When the dress appeared on the catwalk the top was completely see-through, but it looks as though Meghan has added a lining to protect her modesty.

Cards that beam the colours of Christmas

This Christmas, two friends have joined hands to create greeting cards for the colour blind. The idea was born when Siddha Kannur, an art designer in the city, met Tanvi Tandon from Delhi to create a cover page for a book. Mr. Kannur says, “Tanvi and I bonded well and shared a great chemistry. We soon decided to work on a project every year.” Ms. Tandon says she conceptualised the idea. “I spoke to Siddha about the idea and he was very excited about it.” Ms. Tandon says the objective was not just to create cards for the colour blind, but bring out emotions through sight. Before embarking on the project, the duo sought the help of Dr. Jay Neitz, a professor of ophthalmology and colour vision researcher at the University of Washington. Ms. Tandon says Dr. Neitz helped them understand the value of colours and how to help the colour-blind view things. She says, “He gave us a palette of colours that could be easily distinguished.” Mr. Kannur says that Dr. Neitz taught them the percentage of..

Blackstock inventor and sculptor known as Father Goose Bill Lishman dies at age 78

BLACKSTOCK - In paying tribute to his late friend Bill Lishman, James Raffan recalls how his fellow traveller once told him he started a fire with a hand lens by massaging a piece of glacial ice with a knife. The director of external relations for Peterborough's Canadian Canoe Museum isn't sure if the story is exactly true - but he wouldn't be surprised if it was, given how incredibly audacious and creative the accomplished sculptor was. "He wasn't just shooting hot air into the world. He was enacting his dreams," the Seeleys Bay resident said Tuesday of the award-winning artist, filmmaker, inventor, pilot and environmentalist best known for inspiring the Oscar-nominated 1996 movie Fly Away Home. Lishman, who earned the nickname Father Goose for pioneering leading birds to migrate using his ultralight aircraft, died Saturday. He was 78. Raffan, who first met the longtime Scugog Township resident when they were working for expedition cruise company Adventure Canada i..

Plastic shoes and feminist art make a standout pair at Galeria Melissa NYC

Shoes are the main event at Galeria Melissa NYC. Here, in a nod to the store’s cast iron columns, heels are displayed on custom millwork pedestals coated in Benjamin Moore Black Satin. (Alex Fradkin) FASTSIGNS applied a triangular vinyl mural to mirror glass by Guardian on the main sales floor. That surface, as well as tempered two-way mirror glass from the same company (not pictured), reflect the custom millwork tables (foreground), which are painted Benjamin Moore White to match the custom Corian table in the center. (Alex Fradkin) In collaboration with designer Muti Randolph, Mancini Duffy left the landmarked storefront’s exterior columns largely untouched, but artist Sam Cannon enlivened the vestibule with a feminist video that’s part of The Future of Her, one of four exhibitions planned for the store-gallery this year. (Alex Fradkin) The colorful piece is amplified by a Guardian mirror floor bisected by a ramp lined by Guardian clear glass and topped wi..

Asamoah Gyan poses beside bizarre statue… produced by same sculptor who made tribute to...

GHANA legend Asamoah Gyan has become the latest football star to be been honoured with a questionable statue. It is believed the sculptor was also responsible for the bizarre design of Michael Essien's unveiling in Ghana last week. Ghana legend Asamoah Gyan poses next to his questionable statueSome of the greats have become victims of dodgy sculptures - including Cristiano Ronaldo and Diego Maradona. And it appears the former Sunderland striker has joined the elite list in the southern town of Kumasi. Gyan, 32, posed next to the statue which appears to look like it's sinking into the ground. The designer pulled off his same trademark haircut with the blonde streak running down the side of his head.

Display lets visitors judge books by their covers

A selection of iconic book covers, including one for James Joyce’s Dubliners and another produced by Banksy, will go on display in a British museum next year. The exhibition, by Penguin Random House, consists of book covers from the publisher’s Essentials series of modern classics with unconventional cover designs, launched in 1998. Artists including Banksy and the graphic designer Chris Ashworth were invited by the company to rethink the covers of modern classic novels. Banksy, a little-known graffiti artist at the time, reimagined the cover for Nick Cave’s And the Ass Saw the Angel. His work features an ass dressed in clothing similar to that of the Virgin Mary. The Dubliners cover was designed by Roman Bittner, a renowned German illustrator from the Apfel Zet… Let's block ads! (Why?)

Arizona Camera Museum opens in the Market of Dreams

Cameras have been freezing moments in time to various levels of success since the 1800s with the invention of daguerreotypes. A century later, in 1948, Polaroid released their model 95 Land Camera, the first instant camera that printed photos in about a minute. There have been countless technological advances in the years since to make cameras more easily accessible and we have slightly different expectations of the word “instant.” Now, Flagstaff residents can explore the development of cameras through history at the Arizona Camera Museum, which opened this past November. Donated display cases line the walls of the room where the museum found its home inside Sunnyside’s Market of Dreams. Several Kodak No.2 Beau Brownie cameras with brown and blue geometric art deco designs by industrial designer Walter Dorwin Teague fill part of a display case and demonstrate the style the designer popularized in the early 1900s. Other cameras are disguised as soda cans, children’s toys and even a pock..
